Windows 7: How do I use driver signing?

How do I use driver signing?

I'm trying to install the driver for an old electronic piano. Windows couldn't install the driver automatically, so I inserted the driver disc. But there are just a few .drv and .sys files that I can't open. I placed them in windows/system32/drivers which didn't help. In the manual it says:

1. For XP(no guide for Vista/7) go to control panel->system->hardware and click driver signing button. Click the ignore button on the dialog box, then click ok.
2. Place the CD-ROM
3. Connect the instrument to the computer and turn it on.
4. This displays found new hardware wizard. Select install the software automatically. (recommended)

So I looked for the driver signing button all over the control panel to no avail. Does it even exist in windows 7?

Hi and welcome

Win 7 automatically requires a signed driver. Isuspect the piano driver is not. The are some convouted workarounds but even then it is doubtful

Sorry I cant help
